Mitigate the Adobe Reader/Acrobat XI Vulnerability
News broke yesterday regarding a zero-day vulnerability in Adobe Reader and Acrobat XI.
Adobe released its Security Advisory last night which includes some important mitigation options.
Users can protect themselves by enabling “Protected View”.
Here’s what the setting looks like in Adobe Reader XI running on Windows 8.
Adobe recommends choosing the “Files from potentially unsafe locations” option, but to be frank, we suggest you select “All files”.
